Cutting and etching test files

Postby Gene Uselman » Sun Nov 20, 2016 8:42 am

I converted these files from the Boss website to be more compact and tailored them to the 100w Bodor. They can be easily changed to suit your machines power percent readings (for instance my 130w laser will only run safely to 45%) Most of the colors unfortunately are not layer colors in RDworks so you cannot transfer them directly to your layers, but they work fine. Any RGB (computer color) will work- but not printing colors (cmyk). I will upload several speed settings, they can be put on a cord or chain with the machine for a quick reference. Hope this helps someone. Gene

How well do the bodor files translate over to a redsail clone?

They are not Bodor files, I just created them when I was working on that machine- and the max current is 75% power. If your machine maxes out lower just delete the colors beyond that point. Gene

Thanks for the reply. I'm a few steps away from being ready to do anything useful, but I think that the test pieces is the first step of doing something useful!
